Planned maintenance: Please note EAPF Online will be unavailable between 09:00 on 30 October until 17:00 on 31 October 2019 for essential maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Any Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) membership that you've accrued up to 31 March 2014 is based on a protected retirement age of 65; this is fixed and cannot change.

Therefore, different retirement ages may apply to pre 1 April 2014 and post 31 March 2014 membership, meaning that any reductions applied on early retirement may differ.

If you have 2 years or more total membership or you have a qualifying period of service for 2 years or more, you'll be entitled to benefits when you retire.
